ADJOURNMENT

Project Pincushion

Project Pincushion
Project Pincushion

Friends of the International Quilt Museum continue to sponsor PROJECT PINCUSHION, a way for quilters from all over the world to support the IQM. For this continuing project, people have the opportunity to make pincushions of any size, shape, or color using any form of needlework: sewing, crochet, knitting, cross stitch, needlepoint. The pincushions are being sold in the IQM gift shop and at special museum events, with proceeds going directly toward future exhibits at the IQM.

Individuals as well as members of guilds or bees can continue to support the IQM by making and sending your pincushions to:

International Quilt Museum
1523 N 33rd St.
Lincoln, NE 68503

Please include your name, address, and email address with each pincushion. Questions should be directed to project chairperson, Donna di Natale at [email protected]
